1. Royal Norwich Golf Club
📌 Location: The Weston Estate Weston Hall Road, Norwich NR9 5JZ | 💷 Green Fees: from £100
The Royal Norwich Golf Club, established in 1893, offers an exceptional golfing experience.
Nestled in a stunning 10,000-acre, 400 year old parkland estate, the club has carefully preserved its history while embracing modern standards.
The championship course stretches over 7,200 yards from the back tees (but offers multiple tee options) and presents a fair test for golfers of all abilities.
There are a variety of challenging holes with the Par 3 3rd and Par 4 14th are particularly notable, presenting a beautiful water hazard that requires careful navigation.
2. Eaton Golf Club
📌 Location: Newmarket Rd, Norwich NR4 6SF | 💷 Green Fees: from £60
Established in 1910, Eaton Golf Club is a beautifully maintained 18-hole parkland course located in the heart of Norwich.
Known for its tricky greens and tree-lined narrow fairways, Eaton’s 18-hole course is a par 70 and nearly 6,200 yards. Designed by J.H. Taylor, it’s an attractive parkland course that demands accurate and intelligent shots.
The 4th hole, a challenging par-4, often proves to be a test for even the most skilled golfers, requiring an accurate tee shot to avoid the strategically placed bunkers.
3. Barnham Broom Golf Club
📌 Location: Honingham Rd, Barnham Broom, Norwich NR9 4DD | 💷 Green Fees: from £45
Situated in the picturesque Norfolk countryside, Barnham Broom Golf Club offers two stunning 18-hole golf courses, the Hill Course and the Valley Course.
It’s fair to say that The Valley Course is known as the better layout, and one of the best courses in Norfolk. A, par 72, the course is protected by numerous water hazards, with the par-4 13th hole requiring a carry over water to reach the green.
The Hill Course, par 71, boasts panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, with the par-3 2nd hole being a favourite amongst many due to its stunning elevated tee.
Together, they make Barnham Broom one of the best golf hotels in the UK, ranking in the GB & Ireland Top 100 Golf Resorts.

Founded in 1888, Royal Cromer Golf Club is not just one of top golf courses in Norfolk, but also ranks in the top 100 list in the UK.
If you make the effort to head out here, you’ll see why straight away. The 18-hole par-72 course offers cliff-top golf with stunning views throughout the round.
Links in style, it’s known for its gorse-lined fairways and deep bunkers. The par-3 14th hole, known as “Lighthouse”, offers stunning sea views, but the exposed position can mean that wind often comes into play.
